OI.VIKAL : : VAX Wvcic will still be a po litical factor in Nebraska politics after next March. No man with such n follow ing and such u record can be killed by a single reverse. A sruicr/r railroad has now become n necessity to every onUldo addition. At the rate property is being platted n balloon line will soon have to bo called into requisition. Tun railroad rejoicing over the defeat of Van Wyek It tempered by tlio sober rollcction that the corporations failed to supplant him with the man of their choice. Tun promised union depot still waits on the convenience of the railroad mana gers. Meanwhile tiio dangerous Tenth street crossing continues to bo used as a switching yard for the business of the railroads. A uixiiSTKit of deeds with fees amountIng - Ing to $20,000 ayoar would bo a bonanza In fact. The fco business is a relic of feudalism. Public olllelals can afford to bo content with liberal salaries and the public with tlio surplus. BISMARCK is again attacked by the gout. Tills is an unfavorable augury for the opponents of the great chancellor in the coming elections for tlio reichstag. Bis marck's gout has alway heretofore portended - tended Uismurck's victory. MH. MANIHJIISON'S private secretary writes to ids homo paper to assure it of the delight of the administration over Mr. Van Wvck's defeat , Mr. Ham speaks two words for Ids employer and none for those lor whom ho is not authorized to speak or paid to scribblo. THE old Goodrich lot on Farnam and Sixteenth street , which was sold to John A. MoShano last Juno for $50,000 , has ngain changed hands , this time at an ad vance of $20,000 over the last recorded Urico. Senatorial boomlots may fall , but the vuliio of real estate in Omaha con- tlnues to rise with a steadiness and per severance which is undisturbed by wind , weather or politics. AccoimiNd to the congressional report on the Fremont postolHco building appropriation , the Northwestern railroad propose to erect their t-hops at an. early rtayln that thriving town. What did Mr. Hughltt's request for a donation of $70,000 from the citizens of Omaha mean anyhow ? This is the question which the business men who were circulating the petition to the board of county commis sioners arc beginning to ask. themselves The People's DdTcat. There will bo general disappointment and indignation throughout the slate over the rc ult of the senatorial struggle which has ended in the defeat of Van Wyck. Hegret will not be confined to Nebraska alone , where tlio general is ncrsonally known nnd honored for lite faithful devotion to principles dear to his ronstituenls. Throughout the whole oountrywhercver the cause which ho has championed hns supporters and friends , and the oncmirs which ho has made arc understood and felt , the defeat of Senator Van Wyck will be generally regarded as an audacious blow at popular sovereignly secured through a dangerous subversion of repre sentative government , lie was the pee ples'choice. His cause was confidently committed into the hands of men chosen bj * the people to voice their will and pledged by the most solemn of all pledges to stake their all upon his polit ical fortunes. He had mntlo a brave and manly canvass for re-elcclion , appealing from the politicians to the pcoplc.and the reply was an endorsement so marked nnd so decisive that the result was not considered doubtful. Chal lenging corporate monopoly In the open field he would have won without question if the treachery of pretended friends had not come to tlio assistance of corporate corruption and tlio tremendous pressure which tlio monopolies brought to bear upon the legislature elected to elect tlio people's candidate. As General Van Wyck's cause was the people's , so his defeat is the defeat of tlio people. It will be so taken throughout the country. In the face of tlio legisla tive elections and tlio popular vote polled the rejection of Van Wyck , who ever his successor , was : v bold defiance of popular senti ment , lint there are victories more costly to the victors than the van quished. In the cud the outraged people will make the traitors and suborners of treachery pay dearly for their prize. Suc cess gained at the expense ot political rectitude and in bold defiance of the un derlying principle of representative gov ernment cannot bo more than a. transient victory. The reaction is already setting in. Within a few days bitter indignation will become a swelling tide of resentment which will roll throughout the state and will boat fiercely about the state capital. Sanitation In the HclionU. The report of the Committee of the Hoard of Kdecation at the last meeting of the school board was a painful revela tion of the gross neglect of the most ordi nary sanitary precautions in the con struction of several of our school build ings. According to the showing made by the committee a number of our public .schools have been erected on plans and specifications that would disgrace a school boy. Ventilating Hues connect with sinks , fresh air and foul air ducts arc in direct communication < vith e ch other , and sanitary raquirements , gener ally , seem to have been quite lost sight of in the attempt to secure as many rooms and as much room as pos sible in the space and from the money al lotted. It there is one place more than another , whcru the most rigid precau tions against imperfect sanitation should bo adopted , that place is the school room. An abundance of pure air and light are the two great requisites which all \\cll informed and experienced architects assume in planning such buildings. Without them tired uyes , aching heads , and wearied brains , uro the certain re sults. Many a reprimand given to rest less children would not be called for if gross incompetency on the part of the architects had not made a heavy atmos phere and foul air renponsiblo for child ish nervousness. The board of education owe it to the public to at once inaugurate sweeping re forms in the construction of our school houses. There should no longer bo fav ored architects and stock plans. The first requisite .should bo sanitary com pleteness. Other requirements can safely wait on lids. The New Chinese Treaty. The draft of a treaty which has been agreed upon between the United States and the representatives of China in this country is important as showing that the Chinese government lias concluded that its people cannot be assimilated with the population of the United States , and that it is expedient that immigration shall stop * Hie treaty contains in substance tlio provisions of the anti-Chincso re striction bill which was introduced nttho last session of congress and mot with strong opposition in the house , nnd which has been so greatly amended that its passage is considered doubtful. It is said that the supporters of the measure in the house hardly expect to carry it through at this session , and in view of this the administration has endeavored to secure the substantial objects of the bill through a treaty. The treaty , how ever , contains one important provision that is not in tlio bill. It provides that the Chinese who may bo in the United States shall bo entitled to the same pro tection of tlio laws as all other persons , a provision which it is claimed by these familiar with the history of the negotia tion of the treaty would make the United Slides responsible for any outrage upon t ho Chinuso of tlio character they have sev eral time.s been made the victims of. The period of the exclusion act is extended by the treaty to thirty years , counted , U is presumed , from the date of the ratifica tion of the treat- . The present restric tion act was fora period of seven years , four of which have elapsed , and though this Jaw is very rigid in its provisions , it has been discovered that ingenious ways have been resorted to to evade it. The principal features of the Morrow bill and of the now proposed treaty are that no Chim o laborer shall have the right to emigrate to the United States for a certain number of years ; that moans shall bo provided for the identification by photographic representations of any Chinaman who shall seek to go abroad , and that the number of Chinese that may bo brought over in any one ship or vessel shall bo limited. The treaty is a con tinuation of the acts of 1833 and 1881 , which were in the line of attempted ex clusion of Chinese laborers , commencing with the liftcen passenger act , vetoed by President Hayes , followed by the twenty years' restriction act , vetoed by President Arthur , and culminating in the measures now proposed. Relative to the Morrow bill , the report of the committee on the measure said that notwithstanding the re peated acts of legislation manifold evasions of the law have been practiced which haru blocked the federal courts of San Francisco with quasi-criminal cases which have precedence over other busi ness , nnd have failed to meet the exigcn * cics which called the laws into exist ence. Furthermore the failure of the laws to accommplish the purpose in tended by their enactment , and llio con tinued emigration of Chinese laborers , has precipitated a race conllict resulting In nets of violence that cannot bo ig nored and should be prevented by whole some legislation. Tim draft of the treaty will probably be considctcd by tlio senate at the pres ent .session , but llnaal notion may not bo had before the next congicss. It is proba bly as much of a concession on the part of tlio Chinese government as the United States could reasonably ask. Progress or Manual A writer in an eastern paper says that those not specially interested in the sub ject of manual training know little of the i-xtont to which it has found favor. At the exhibition last spring of the work dona by children in such classes through out the country it was shown that a faith in the system Is very general. More than sixty schools and institutions , represent ing many cities nnd towns , and embrac ing nil grades of manual training , from its first step in the Kindergarten to its full development in the training school , took part in the exhibition. In Now York , counting charitable institutions , there are thirty-three schools where children and young people receive technical edu cation , cither as part of their sciiool worker or as a ptnparation for permanent em ployment in so.no branch of industry. Provision is now made in tiio public ; schools of .several largo cities for manual training. In the Philadelphia public schools kindergarten methods are used in the sub-primary grades. Sowing is taught in all grades. The industrial art school supplies instruction in drawing , design ing , modeling in clay , wood-carving , carpentry and metal work. In tlio manual training school there is instruction in free hand and mechan ical drawing , carpentry , wood-turning , use of tools , forging , management of en- cities , etc. In the lioston public schools tlio pupils are allowed certain hours in the week wlion they can work in the classes of tlio llomctiway technical schools. In Now York the importance which technical training is assuming in so many private schools and institutions is sulliclont answer to these critics who do not believe cither in the advisability or practicability of making manual train ing a part of our public school work. Steadily this principle is making its way , proving its worth and wisdom with every step of its progress , and giving assurance that its ultimate general adoption is merely a question of time. The hate l'rocs < ! or Youinang. The cause of science lost one of its most industrious and valuable workers in the death of Professor Edward Livingston Youmans , which occurred on last Tues day. More than forty years of his lite were actively devoted to scientific study and research , carried on under the allliction of a greatly impaired eyesight , which to the majority of men would have been an insurmountable obstacle to such labor. When thirteen years of age he was attacked by ophthalmia , and for some years was totally blind. Ever after wards his sight was very defective , and it frequently happened that lie was unable to road. Yet he did not give up the work for which he had a natural love , in which ho received valuable aid from his sister , Miss Annie Eliza Youmans , who was in full sympathy with her brother's inclina tions , and the results gave him a place among the foremost ot his contemporaries in the extent and value of his contribu tions to scientific knowledge. Ho was the autlior of numerous works which occupy a high rank among similar pro ductions , the best and most widely known of these being "Alcohol and the Constitution of Man , " "The Cor relation anil Conservation of Forces , " "The Chemistry of the Sunbeam , " and "The Dynamics of Life. " All these works have been accepted as standards , and widely read as well in Europe as in this country. But the greatest value of the work of Prof. Youmans was in its successful ollbrt to popularize scientific knowledge and reading. If not the originator , ho was ono of the pioneers of the plan of popular lectures on scientific subjects , nnd ho was most happily constituted to present a subject clearly to the unlearned in such matters. In 1372 , in furtherance of this purpose , ho established the I'opii- lar Science Monthly , of which ho contin ued the editor to the close of Ins life , as sisted in recent years by his younger brother , William .1. Youmans. The ser vice oi that publication in stimulating popular interest In and extending tlio knowledge of scientific subjects has boon very groat. Tlio year before starting the magazine Prof. Youmans projected the "International Scientific Series , " which Iia's been very successful , fifty.seven vol umes having been issued up to this ( into. It is sa'd lie was more instrumental than all other men put together in introducing and promoting tiio circulation in this country of Herbert Spencer's works , which he edited. That distinguished philosopher , whoso fame begun in tlio United States , wes also indebted to Prof. Youmans for the first serious attention ho received from the British public. Surely the work of such a lifo merits the heartiest commendation. Men ex haust eulogy and panegyric in honoring the memory of the successful soldier and politician , not always with a thought of motives or methods. The labors of the patient soldier of science , always di rected and contribute. ! to tlio improve ment and advancement of mankind , are certainly entitled to nt least n passing mention and tribute. A Vote-run Htiiilent. It is said that the veteran historian , George Bancroft , who is in the eighty- seventh year of his ncro , has turned his attention from the writing of history to the study of Shakespeare. And ho is re newing his acquaintance with the pages of the "Immortal bard" for a purpose , in which ho hopes to make the public a sharer. He has entered upon his now field of labor with the ardor of a young stuuent , and hopes if his lifo in spared to add a valuable contribution to Shakes- percan literature. What an example is this for these men , literary , professional , or otherwise , who grow weary of tlio con- tliet almost before they have passed the meridian of lifo , and instead of seeking now sources of labor are eager to surren der those they have. The veteran his torian , whose whole life has been one of plodding industry , is not only unwearied nt eighty-seven , but is so vigorous , ambi tious and hopeful thaj. ho takes upon him self a task which to 4nno has been nearly a lifo work , and ho will pursue it with his wonted care and persistence. It is to bo hoped he will live wgivo the world the result of his study of a subject re specting which there is still opportunity for enlightenment. , hni gained nothing in Van Wyck's defeat. For'iyears thu repub lican following of General Van Wyck has been the leaven which has redeemed the republican party from abject sla\ cry to the corporations. If treachery and the lavish use of monopoly money have suc ceeded in permanently alienating thou sands of republicans from the party wo fail to sec what the grand old party will gain by the result at Lin coln. The party can never bo harmonized on monopoly linos. That attempt has failed too ofleti in Nebraska for hope of future success. The conllicts and debates of the ten years' struggle have educated a constituency which has proved itself time and again less anxious for party success as such than for honest government by honest men. It has never yet failed to pay back with interest the treachery of the machine to the masses. The Ink is not yet faded on the avalanche of ballots under which an outraged re publican constituency buried forever a republican candidate nominated for con gress in brazen defiance of an over whelming public sentiment.
